New Vectrex Locator Mobile AppPosted on January 1, 2012
Oliver at vectrexmuseum.com has just released a Vectrex Locator web-app for mobile phones, for tracking up-to-the-moment, international, on-the-go Vectrex sales and news.
The Vectrex is close to Atari Asteroids’ heart: it was a vector screen home game system released in 1982, with a spaceship-shooting-things game (Mine Storm) installed on every unit. While they were only in stores for a year or two, they have an avid following to this day, and can often be found on sites like eBay.
The VecApp is a web app, in that it resides on a server and is accessed via the internet. It’s specially designed for mobile devices, and with a data connection, appears to function as any native app would.
VecApp features include:
- Displays Vectrex collectibles on different eBay markets
- Currency converter (updated several times on trade days)
- Internal clock including seconds (using your device´s time configuration)
- Actual Vectrex News (updates when loading the web-app)
- Answers the question “What the hack is a Vectrex?”
- Hidden Easter Egg
To install it, open www.vectrexmuseum.com/mobile/ with your mobile device, then tap “Add to Bookmarks” for easy, one-tap access.
